Hum... back in a place where I worked we had a good solution for
overheating systems. We had this bathroom exhaust fan (a standard
issue type you might find at home depot). On it was mounted a short
length of 2x4 that would overhang the back and allow us to hang it
off the top of an old SGI machine that liked to overheat.

Worked great and it moved a whole lot more air than those dinky
and overpriced 12V fans. Was a great conversation piece too...
